Matching Polka Dot Separates!

I'm pretty much in love with this outfit. I had been admiring the come-back of matching separates recently. When I found these matching separates at Forever 21 I was so excited that they fit perfectly and looked this cute. So, of course, I had to take them home with me. It's always great when a shopping trip ends up that successful!

top & skirt: forever 21 | cardigan: ann taylor - thrifted | shoes: forever 21 | necklace: gift from Jeanie

Also, bustier top! Hooray! I've been wanting one since last summer. This one is absolutely perfect for me though, so it was worth the wait. Polka dots and a bow are an instant win. 


I can't remember any time I've had my stomach showing in an outfit other than a swimsuit. This is definitely a comfortable amount of skin though. It's more like a cutout than true belly-baring. When I think of stomachs showing I think of late 90s/early 2000's monstrosities. This is much more retro and classy!

Anyway, I hope you guys have a great weekend. I'm hanging in Roanoke, visiting and catching up! I'm sure there'll be plenty of instagraming going on! 

Happy Friday!

haha, I love this dress (dress set???)! I almost didn't realize it was a two piece until you noticed it. I actually thought that was a belt or something. I'm so observant. I love that the pattern is pretty navy polka dots--peeeeerfect!

I'm gonna have to make a trip to Forever 21 soon to see if I can find any cute things like you. :D

Oh my goodness, your outfit is just adorable! I didn't realize that separates are coming back in style. I just think of them as the frumpy two piece sets in every thrift store - these are much better!
